The road in is gravel and dusty but once you reach the campground entrance it looks park like. We had a deluxe pull through site that had plenty of room and was very nice. Site was situated so we got shade from out camper in the afternoon, very nice. Lots of full time residents but sites were well maintained. Lots for kids to do but still quiet at night. We would definitely stay again. We camped at Topeka / Capital City KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

At first does not look like much, but it has a good layout and turned out to be very nice campground. There are 8 "Big Rig" sites (58-65). Pull throughs (sites 1-37) and some back in sites. Our site 33 was just long enough for my 36' motor home and toad without unhooking. (sat friendly). Many of these sites have a slight drop off at the end. There are also deluxe patio sites. Sites are gravel/dirt with grass in between. FHU's good. Sewer a bit to the rear, may need extension if your bay is mid rig. Good Verizon and T-Mobile signal. Wifi - (5 Ghz 30 Mps down.) 2.4 Ghz was hard to get on, 5 Ghz did drop often. Many satellite friendly sites also treed sites. Propane on site. Grass areas for rover and a K-9 park. I did need a board under one wheel to level, but did not see any other rigs with boards. Camp store open to 8pm. Laundry rooms are in two places ($1.50 wash). There are cabins and tent areas. Playground, fishing ponds, saltwater pool, exercise rooms. There is a storm basement in main building. You may not want to trust your GPS to get here, some roads may have changed. There is one way in on a loose gravel road, and another over paved roads. If you call they will give directions over the paved roads. Campground near interstate, but not noisy. We thought it was a fine KAO for our overnight stay. We camped at Topeka / Capital City KOA in a Motorhome.

Big rig friendly with concrete sites. Easy access to I70. Dog park was large and provided dog bags. Cable, laundry, and wifi worked well. Easy to ride bicycle. Very clean and well maintained campground. We camped at Topeka / Capital City KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed here one night on our trip home. Dirt road to get to the Campground, gravel site not level, close to one another, barely enough room for our vehicle. Dog park okay but fairly far away over a small bridge. Okay for one night but I wouldn't want to stay longer. There were storms that night and when we checked in we weren't told about what to do in case of a tornado and if there was a tornado shelter. Being in tornado alley they really should inform campers what the process is. Are there sirens, do they come and blow their horns, where the shelter is, are pets allowed etc etc. In addition there was a lot of flooding around the camp sites due to the storm. We camped at Topeka / Capital City KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Beautiful park convenient to highways. Fishing ponds and vintage restored barn created a scenic setting beyond simply pulling into a parking lot. The facilities were well-maintained, especially the new saltwater pool. Staff was friendly and helpful, they've created a nice campground that, even on a holiday weekend when most sites were full, was peaceful and had a family atmosphere. We camped at Topeka / Capital City KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Explore the nature trail that winds uphill from the fishing ponds, plenty of birds and wildflowers there. The Kamp K9 park was clean and provided running space for our two dogs. Don't miss driving the short distance to the Kansas State Capitol building, absolutely beautiful.

Adequate but not great. Our long pull-through was plenty big but very close to the busy interstate highway, lots of noise. The man who checked us in was nice and very helpful. Ask about the best way to get back to the interstate, he gave us directions for a route much better than the one our GPS brought us in on. OK for overnight but I have been in better KOAs lately. We camped at Topeka / Capital City KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed here two days during a period of foul weather, severe storms nearby, high winds and rain all day. This KOA has a big red barn with a basement severe storm shelter which is why we picked it. There is a row of permanent residents but those campers are well kept and seemed to consist of young families with school age children. It felt very park like and safe. The office is only open 3:00 to 8:00 pm but the fellow was there was nice and helpful. WIFI was excellent although it would stop and restart every couple of hours. Campground layout was pleasing and well thought out. There was no mud in spite of all the rain we had due to nice grass and gravel/sand on our sites. There is a very nice children's park and fishing ponds. Our site was fine but a bit short. It is set in a place between two interstates so there was some traffic noise but not too bad. A nicer than average KOA. We will stop again, especially if we need a place to sit out storms. We camped at Topeka / Capital City KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This was a nice KOA. We rolled in late but were treated warmly in the office. Got a nice pull through sight. Gravel but level. Park has wide drive lanes and easy in and out. Nice old barn as an office. Ponds and a great walking trail. We would stay here again. We camped at Topeka / Capital City KOA in a Motorhome.

Lovely KOA. Very spacious campground with beautifully maintained grounds. 3 fishing ponds, really nice walking trail through the woods and along a creek. Barn/office building is super nice, with tables and chairs and game areas, as well as a cozy living room area with comfy furniture, tv, and book exchange. Separate exercise room. The actual campsites are pretty nice. We were in a deluxe site with patio and swing and it was super nice, but not necessarily worth the extra cost. Especially with gravel site pad that wasn't level. Friendly staff. Road noise during the day, quiet at night. We enjoyed our stay and would stay again. Really nice place. Verizon signal good. We camped at Topeka / Capital City KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Called when a nearby RV park was full and they had a map to our campsite ready when we got there after dark. Pancakes on Saturday morning were good. Office and dining/rec area are in remodeled barn put on the site. We camped at Topeka / Capital City KOA in a Travel Trailer.

My girlfriend and I both live in Topeka and this KOA is a day escape for us. VERY VERY well kept, clean. Personnel there are awesome and outgoing. The new pool is a salt water pool, which again is very well maintained, nice landscaping around the pool area, and a steel pavilion with picnic tables to get out of the sun and smoke. One caution is that the steps getting into the pool are very slippery,they just need gripper strips installed to solve that. Highly recommend staying there. We camped at Topeka / Capital City KOA in a Truck Camper.

This may be the least appealing KOA we've ever stayed at. It feels old and tired, with no evidence of any updating in years. There's a high-traffic road close by, a train not far away, and planes flying low over the park from morning to late in the evening, so it's definitely noisy. One of the two washers in the laundry was out of order. Underwhelming in almost every way. We camped at Topeka / Capital City KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a nice park with a real country feel to it. It's right next to US-75, but the road it's on is a dirt road. The highway is not noisy. They have a lovely pond and the owners have miniature ponies which are friendly and cute. Our only beef is our site was NOT level, we had to really finagle to get our trailer level. Our front end was jacked up just about as far as it could go. Also, there are some tacky permanent trailers there which should be kept up better. But we would come here again, as the good things outweighed the bad. We camped at Topeka / Capital City KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Clean and cute campground. Office staff was very nice. Site was gravel, but level. Cable and WiFi both worked well. It was a little tricky getting back to the interstate from this location. We camped at Topeka / Capital City KOA in a Motorhome.

Bathrooms were very clean. There are a few long term residents and sites could be more level. They were working on this when we were there. It is next to a busy highway so you hear the traffic all night and day. There are 3 fishing ponds. There are a few campers raising or taking care of geese and there is goose poop everywhere. It is mostly gravel and when the wind blows, dust gets everywhere. Manager/Owners are friendly and helpful. Office was open in the afternoons. We camped at Topeka / Capital City KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
